Adaptive Agents for Cyber-Physical Systems

Ichiro Satoh

Abstract

This paper proposes a bio-inspired approach to adapting software components in CPSs. It introduces the notions of differentiation and dedifferentiation in cellular slime molds. When a software component delegates a function to another component coordinating with it, if the former has the function, this function becomes lessdeveloped and the latter’s function becomes well-developed like that in cellular differentiation. The approach enables software components on CPSs to be naturally adapted to changes in the cyber and physical world in a self-organizing manner. It is constructed as a middleware system to execute general purpose applications on a CPS. We present several evaluations of the approach in CPSs.
